just looking quick i didnt see anything about having that option on stuffforyourranger.com

Nope....well..yes..it is the top speed of the day AND the top speed of the truck because I did hid the speed limiter.
the truck should think its going slower than it is.. thats what happens with bigger tires.

my speedo said something like 88 and the gps said 102

Any OBDII vehicle. I swapped mine from my Ranger, to my girls Sentra, my moms Sante Fe and my F-150 a lot.

I've got the stock tune in, thunderbolt airbox w/ k&n w/ steel tube, 2.5" catback to a dynomax ultra flow oval then dumped behind the muffler, synthetic oils everywhere, 40k old autolite double platinums, 40k old fuel filter, 4.88's and 35" BFG KM's at an unknown pressure(lol).

This is the 2nd tank after I poured in this new Gumout fuel attitive. And well....I'm definately seeing improvements after the first tank that actually burnt the gumout.

This was almost all highway at 70 and over mph. Average speed that day was like 65mph i think?

You know...having finally looked at the numbers on average after a 'high speed' run at high RPMs, I feel comfortable in saying this engine(4.0L SOHC) loves higher RPMs for efficiency. Marie mentioned getting better mileage in 4th on the freeway with her 3.73's and 33's compared to 5th.

What option are you talking about? I got mine from Wayne when he first started carrying them.

Sorry Matt....I did the math before choosing my gear ratio. I compared 4.10 to 4.56 to 4.88 to even 5.13 with variable in tire diameter...rpm at a given speed in overdrive or another gear, effective ratios, and things of similar nature. I can't find the formulas right now, but my truck is indeed reading 104% of the actual speed with the 34.8's and 4.88's. My effective ratio is overall lower than my truck was stock with it's 245/75R16(30.5) and 4.10's.

My speed showed on the Scangauge has been confirmed by two different GPS's and both of different brands. Also by those darn cop speed trailers on the side of the road. Oh...and a cop's radar gun as well. lol. I'm within a half a mile and hour from being 100% accurate to actual speed(On the scangauge).

In stock form with the 30.5's or the 31's, my speed limiter was about 92/93 mph. With 35's on my truck and still 4.10, I was hitting the limiter in 3rd gear not pulling many RPMS, yet was traveling at 100 or 105...my effective ratio dropped because of the larger than stock tires(speedo reading slower than actual traveling speed). I had the Scangauge setup for +10% I believe(because that was the distance in tire diameter after the calculations).
